Organic Morality

I don’t know anybody who thinks that they are not moral or good. But what does that mean? Is it the piety found in religion? Is it giving to the poor? Eating Vegan? How can a person read, “love thy neighbor as thyself” and continue to partake in the same bloodshed and tragedy that’s persisted throughout history?

Do bacteria count as life? Are chemicals alive? An atom? Does the cell suffer when it splits? Must it have a brain? Jellyfish don’t, but I consider them a living thing. If everything is energy, then it’s active, and if that’s true then everything is alive in a way. This is much easier to accept than the opposing argument: that we and all else are lifeless bio-cogs in a Petri dish.

This is a fallacy, though, perhaps only a few things are really living, in that case, the Christians have it right that we are held accountable, but it’s to death, not God. Life is then precious for the sake living and nothing else. Morals then come from the necessity to live.

  1. No morals come from the human conscience which causes humans to judge their own actions.
    Animals do not judge their own actions they follow their instincts.
    We also have instincts which often clash with our conscience causing an inner battle.
    All life reproduces that is the theme of survival; rocks don’t reproduce.
    Life lives on life its the food chain and when circumstances change life changes to survive its called natural selection.
    We now face an antibiotic apocolypse because bacteria want to survive. They have developed immunity .
